CULVER CITY, Ca. - A contingent of Minnesota Vikings' players sent to Brett Favre's home in Mississippi earlier Tuesday have apparently convinced the indecisive quarterback to at least a trip back to the Twin Cities as the off-again, on-again saga of his possible return in 2010 has taken another turn.

The NFL Network is reporting Favre boarded a plan bound for Minnesota Tuesday following a visit from teammates kicker Ryan Longwell, guard Steve Hutchinson and defensive end Jared Allen, presumably to persuade him to return for an encore season with the Vikings -- this according to an earlier Minneapolis Star-Tribune report.

The NFL report also said Favre's official website had issued an e-mail to members of the media, stating: "Stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett Favre's possible return."

Favre has yet to announce a final decision as he continues to debate the health of his injured left ankle. He underwent surgery in May to have scar tissue and bone spurs removed.

Two weeks ago, the Star-Tribune reported that Favre had decided to not play in 2010 because the ankle injury had not responded well to treatment. It has been speculated that the Vikings may have asked Favre to take some more time before coming to a final verdict.

It was a year ago this week that Favre decided to end a second retirement and play for the Vikings. He has one year remaining on the two-year deal he signed last August 18.
